Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This is my choice of the day:
Heirs of Empire – Book 1 of The Scourwind Legacy by Evan C. Currie
2% “Well, slaughter a few thousand people and you do get a bit of a reputation,” he said, standing up. “I honestly should have killed more. No one really seems to mind if your kill list tops a million for some reason. The difference between a murderer and a statesman, don’t you know?”
“Statesman? You led a revolt against the lawful government, using chemical warfare as your lead weapon. That’s not statesmanship, that’s a psychotic break,” Mira told him.
BLURB: The Scourwind family legacy brought the empire to the height of its power and prosperity and defended it against all enemies. Now one man’s machinations aim to shift the balance of power—with violent and devastating consequences. As the stakes rise, loyalists, mercenaries, and political opportunists rally around the heirs in a desperate bid to unseat the usurper. But if their risky gambit fails, will the empire crumble into oblivion?
As you can see, I’ve only just started this one. However, I have high hopes for it – Himself has read one of his other series and enjoyed it. I will be reviewing the sequel to this book for Netgalley in due course and thought it might be an idea to be organised enough to read the first book before tucking into it. So hopefully, I’ll be writing a review for this one next week…
